Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot found its villain. Neil Casey has joined the female remake of the 1980s classic alongside stars Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Melissa McCarthy, Sony told EW, confirming a Deadline report.

In addition to writing for Saturday Night Live, Casey has recently appeared in the Kroll Show, Yahoo’s Other Space and Inside Amy Schumer. Details about Casey’s role in the upcoming Ghostbusters are being kept secret for now. Production for the film is already underway, with Feig and Kate Dippold behind the script.

Feig has already shared some first looks from the set on Twitter, and just last week, he announced Chris Hemsworth’s addition to the cast as a receptionist. Andy Garcia and Michael K. Williams have recently been added as well.

The newest Ghostbusters is set to hit theaters on July 22, 2016.
